The only constant in life is change. Nowhere is that more true than in the world of Information Technology. Microsoft announced Windows 10 availability in July 2015 and, with that, there were reports predicting that hundreds of millions of devices would be running Windows 10 by mid-2016.
Where are you in the process of adopting Windows 10? At Citrix, we think that you can use the power of ShareFile to help you move to Windows 10 and improve user mobility.
Traditionally, the discussion around adopting new software centers around two words: “why” and “when.” “Why” generally surrounds a new feature (or set of features) that will provide new/improved functionality, better performance or both. “When,” well … that isn’t as simple and will usually spark more questions:
- Are my devices compatible?
- What about my applications, are they compatible?
- How long will an upgrade take?
Over the years, Citrix has done a great job helping customers maneuver through OS migration projects and any changes that result. For example, XenDesktop simplifies migrations by essentially separating the physical hardware from the operating system ( VDI – Simplify your migration to Windows 10 and beyond ). XenApp allows users to connect to applications regardless of device and operating system. This can aid in streamlining the adoption and upgrade to new software by addressing many of compatibility concerns above.
But what about the data – both corporate and personal – that lives on the devices involved in the upgrade?
Data drives decisions and when you think about the questions above, it’s the availability of the data being served from hardware that keeps IT up at night. This is where Citrix ShareFile can help! ShareFile is Citrix’s industry-leading hybrid cloud file sharing solution. It’s been recognized by Gartner as a leader in the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) market.
With ShareFile, you can set the data free from the hardware and remove the reliance on a single device to accomplish your daily tasks.
